“Gratitude”–by ani di franco

thank you
for letting me stay here
thank you for taking me in
thank you

for the beer and the food
thank you
for loaning me bus fare
thank you for showing me around
that was a very kind thing to do
thank you
for the use of the clean towel
thank you for half of your bed
we can sleep here like brother and sister
you said

but you changed the rules
in an hour or two
I don’t know what you
and your sisters do
but please don’t
please stop
this is not my obligation
what does my body have to do
with my gratitude?

look at you
little white lying
for the purpose of justifying
what you’re trying to do
I know that you felt my resistance
I know that you heard what I said
otherwise you wouldn’t need the excuse

thank you
for letting me stay here
thank you for taking me in
I don’t know where else
I would have gone
but I don’t come and go
like a pop song
that you can play thoughtlessly
then forget once it’s gone
you can’t write me off
and you don’t turn me on

so don’t change the rules
in an hour or two
I don’t know what you and your
sisters do
but please don’t
please stop
this is not my obligation
what does my body have to do
with my gratitude?
